Current Status: Available Foster

Reaction to New People: Shy at first but once he knows them very excited.
Kid Friendly: Yes. He lived with children in his prior home.

Grooming Needs: Normal husky coat which will require regular thorough brushing. You should aim for once a week or so, and more when he is blowing his coat, typically twice a year.
Fence: Xander loves being outside, is strong and has a high prey drive. He would do better in a household with a fence.
Solo or Siblings: He lived with a dog for most of his life in his prior household, but he may do okay without a dog given his people are not away from home too long.
From the Foster: Xander is a big marshmallow. He is the sweetest, calm, laid-back big goof! He has a lot of love and affection to offer anyone willing to give him a chance. He is old enough to have left the majority of those youthful mischievous years behind, but young enough to still have a lot of spunk and character. He is a velcro dog that loves his people and LOVES to cuddle.
Xander initially came to Adopt A Husky and was adopted as a puppy. He recently returned to rescue after his family could no longer care for him. This has been an adjustment for Xander and it does take him a short time to fully warm up, but once he does you will be showered with affection. He lived with children in his previous home and lives with a child in his foster home.
Xander also lived with a dog in his prior home and lives with two other dogs in his foster home. He loves to play and has a low "woo woo woo when he gets excited. He loves to be outside and is a good walker except when he sees a critter nearby. He also really enjoys a good game of fetch!
